In the past, most traditional manufacturers had a very long cycle from inquiry to production. The price has been very high, which made ordinary electronics enthusiasts who want to DIY their electronic projects bury their ideas in their minds. The emergence of PCBWay has undoubtedly changed this situation significantly, which is even a revolution.
Firstly, PCBWay uses new production technology and the latest advanced equipment to significantly reduce costs, giving the special offer for 10 PCBs only $5. PCBA starts from $30 and makes it affordable for almost everyone who wants to bring their ideas to life. Secondly, PCBWay’s data analysis and intelligent ordering system can provide instant quotations online and improve production efficiency from the original 3 days or longer to just 24 hours. Besides, it’s also available for the customers to check the online tracking of the production status of the entire order process. Last but not least, PCBWay offers a complete range of services related to PCB, and we can even help our clients fulfill the projects from a general idea to an actual product. Their primary service tenet is efficient to solve practical problems that customers care about and satisfy customers’ needs to the greatest extent. This is one of the reasons why PCBWay has established itself in the international market over the years.
Today modern technology makes possible the increasing miniaturization of integrated circuits, higher packing density, and smaller layout dimension; hence, higher demands on PCB arise. With the rise of wearable devices, people have higher and higher requirements for the integration of electronics. Factories with the most sophisticated electronic manufacturing capabilities are bound to have tremendous market development potential. Advanced technology makes the production capacity of the equipment higher, and people use it to find or create new materials with better durability and use effect.
To meet the needs of some high-end electronic customers, PCBWay also pays close attention to the latest technology, equipment, and even new materials related to PCB production, for example, the application of HDI technology and nanotechnology, striving to make continuous breakthroughs in process capabilities and keep up with the requirements of the times. Moreover, the development of materials in PCB, the new type of high TG, small thermal expansion coefficient, small dielectric constant, and excellent dielectric loss tangent keep appearing. Using those modern technologies and materials makes those creative designs into reality, thereby higher the PCB demand.
The company’s “Advanced PCB” service has a higher process capability and is also aimed at highend electronic customers who want to manufacture high precision and high integration circuit boards. “We can produce up to 30 layers of PCB, providing different production standards, a variety of substrate types and surface finish methods, as well as novel solder mask colors, such as pink, orange and Gray, transparent, which is very rare on the market at present,” says Yan, CEO of PCBway. “At the same time, we can also provide related test reports for free according to customer needs, such as solderability test report, impedance test report, thermal stress report, etc. While giving customers the freest customization options, it also guarantees high quality.”
Now the PCB manufacturing industry is highly competitive, and new manufacturers are constantly appearing every year. But this did not impact PCBWay because their market positioning is prominent. They provide the best services and high-quality products, and they use a responsible attitude to help customers solve problems effectively. “We are fully responsible for the products we produce, which means if there is a problem, we will propose solutions to customers in a timely manner,” adds Yan. “At present, we are industry-leading in terms of production time, quality control, customer service and web user experience. Therefore, a lot of customers don’t change suppliers after using PCBWay because we are trustworthy.”
The latest technology means higher production efficiency and lower error rate. For both PCBWay and customers, these are the primary reasons for shortening lead time and reducing costs. For example, the Yamaha Pick&Place machine they are using can theoretically mount 100+K components per hour at the fastest. PCBway also has component test equipment developed by themselves. In the premount preparation stage, they test the size and value of each component on the circuit board, which is more convenient to use and dramatically reduces the probability of errors.
PCBWay offers a One-Stop Solution for PCB design, Prototype and Assembly, 3D printing, and CNC machining services. In the past R & D and manufacturing processes, landing a product often required hardware design, PCB manufacturing, material procurement, stencil forming, SMT assembly, and others. Customers need to seek cooperation and coordination with several suppliers. Now their one-stop solution changed this situation. It not only shortens the entire product cycle but also has the quality assurance in every step. In addition, they can even help customers put products for sale in the community.
In the PCBway store, one will find that some of the products are produced and assembled by themselves. Customers like and rely on their one-stop service, and their products have also received more attention. When PCBway decided to do this part of the business initially, we encountered some challenges, such as commodity inventory management, logistics management, etc. But in the end, they overcame the difficulties and completed this part of the content. “Customers’ support is always our greatest motivation. There are many uncertainties in the future, and none of us can predict. The only thing we are sure of is to always stand on the position of customers, understand their real needs, constantly update our technology and equipment, and efficiently solve customer problems,” elucidates Yan.
